    I'm thinking Cueto's game last night has had a profound impact on Homer, particularly if he was charting pitches. Maybe something clicked.

    Then again, I have to temper my enthusiasm by remembering that these are the Pirates. That lineup would have difficulty intimidating your local wiffle ball junkie.

    Well, it may be a complete waste of $15.00, but I just bought the domain name rallyonion.com.

    That's the most important thing!
    This would be a great thing for the bullpen. Especially Rhodes,Massett and Cordero. It seems like they have been in every game this season.

    Ryan pounds one, but Milledge runs it down to end the inning. 5-0 Reds middle of 6th

    Nice!!

    It's a true rally onion, it came into my possession literally right before the Reds exploded at the end of Saturday's game. I'm knocking the crap out of my wooden table over here.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I agree that a rested bullpen is a good thing but how much rest is too much?

    Well, if the starters keep throwing out complete game shutouts...who cares? :O)

    Not three days. Three days very good.
